Please support the Hannah Arendt Center this holiday season!

A tax-deductible holiday gift to the Arendt Center says that you agree that an institutional space for thinking about the world from an Arendtian perspective is vital at a moment of thoughtless and predictable debates.

You can read a letter by Roger Berkowitz, Academic Director of the Hannah Arendt Center, about all we've accomplished in 2014 and all that we hope to achieve in 2015 here.

"Quote" of the Week

"Quote" of the Week

Scholar: Laurie Naranch

“The common element connecting art and politics is that they are both phenomena of the public world. What mediates the conflict between the artist and the man of action is the cultura animi, that is, a mind so trained and cultivated that it can be trusted to tend and take care of the world of appearances whose criterion is beauty.”

“The Crisis in Culture,” in Between Past and Future (1993 [1961]) 218-219
